    I've only got ten rupees left in my mobile account. I need to top it up with a thousand rupees.

    Is "for thousand rupees" wrong?

    Yes. We use "for" when talking about the price of something.

    Can I buy this car?
    Yes, you can buy it for five thousand pounds.

    What's your best price for this Ming vase?
    I can let you have it for two million dollars.

    When you top up your mobile account, you're not buying a product. You're transferring an amount of money from your bank account to your mobile phone account. We "top up" those kinds of accounts "with" a specific amount of money.
